playlist only plays first song...

okay, so I am a shuffle person, I usually shuffle all songs and don't mess around with playlists, but I have decided to start using my ipod when I run and I made an playlist called "exercise music" containing 101 songs....however, when i try to play this playlist or shuffle this playlist it will only play the first song and then i have to manually scroll down to the next song and hit play again--totally annoying when you are running. I have most likely made a stupid error in either making the playlist or in the settings, but i have tried to fix it and google it and no luck. I bow down to those more ipod savvy than me....help!

thanks
k

It sounds like your library has been altered where some of (or all) your songs are tagged as "Skip when shuffling". I don't know why this happens, but it causes the exact symptom you describe. The solution is to select all songs in your library, select Get Info, then on the Options tab you'll see the "Skip when shuffling" option. Just un-check* that and re-sync your iPod.

* If not all songs are tagged like this, the option may not be checked since iTunes will blank out fields that are not the same for multiple items. If you see this is not checked, check it and un-check it, then click OK.
